golfers are usually holed up in the winter... but a new business in ankeny is letting them get back in to the swing of things.... how you can step onto a warm golf course in the dead of winter. a new salvation army thrift store opens in the metro... why you'll find something new everyday on its shelves...and what your purchase means to the organization... and 800-million dollars is up for grabs... the powerball numbers that are a
a record breaking jackpot... just got higher... if someone wins tomorrow night... they'll take home a cool... half billion dollars. ticket sales have pushed up the jackpot not once... but twice today. saturday night's drawing value has jumped to 800-million dollars. the cash payout is 496-million the option of taking annual payments over 29 years. the iowa lottery says demand is high in iowa... and some stores have run out of paper in powerball terminals... players already have big plans for
13:34:46 i'd go buy an island and kind of disappear 13:34:51 tickets are two dollars each... players are now deciding how to pick the best numbers.. lottery officials says each ticket has the same odds, but are some strategies luckier than others? lynn melling breaks it down... if you're yet to buy your tickets... consider letting the computer do the picking for you.. according to powerball... 80- percent of winning tickets were "quick picks".. where the computer selects the numbers rather than choosing your own. but then again, 80-percent of buyers use quick picks to play... if you decide to pick your own numbers anyway... here are a few things to consider. since 19-97 the most selected powerball was the number 20. it was picked 75- times. as for the white balls... the top five most selected numbers are 26... 41... 22...16... and 42. at the same time there are a
number seven isn't as lucky as you think... same goes for the number one. that's because they are used on about 15-percent of tickets... increasing the likelihood of a split jackpot. now the odds of winning the jackpot are one in 292-million... but that doesn't mean it isn't worth taking a chance. savvy gamblers make their betting decision based on what's called a positive-expectation play. that's a bet that will statistically pay more than one-dollar for every dollar risked. in the case of the powerball... that jackpot would have to be at least 584- million dollars in order to have a positive expectation... if there is a single winner.
the latest update shows about 65- percent of all the possible combinations had already been purchased for saturdays drawing... 800-million too much? how about a shot at 165-million? that's the jackpot of tonight's mega millions drawing... tickets cost one dollar... or two dollars with the megaplier option.

the bottom line of this economy is that it is rigged. what this campaign is about is to demand that we create an economy that works for all of us rather than a handful of billionaires. if you work 40 hours a week in america, you should not live in poverty. i'm bernie sanders, and i approve this message. finally tonight.... the city of newton is getting closer to opening its first skating rink.. and they hope this weekend's weather will help move along the process. crews filled the lining of the new skating rink in maytag park this week... it now needs to freeze... the parks department hopes to open in the next two weeks... but of course, mother nature has to lead the way... the
